    Slightly better than I expected...

    When I first saw that they had created a Fruits Basket anime, I was inexplicably happy. They were finally taking a beautiful work of art and adding motion and voices. I was quite pleased until I saw the first episode. Tohru's voice was not what I had thought, it was high-pitched and slightly annoying. I was definitely displeased with Arisa(her voice was too deep), Momiji(his voice actor was a GIRL. HE IS A LITTLE BOY!), and Akito( even though she acts like a man until she reveals her true self in the very last volume, her voice was much too MANLY. They could have at least chosen a unisex voice that could belong to either a man or a woman since Akito portrays both.) Also, in the anime, Rin and Koreno-san (last two Zodiac memebers to be revealed) made no appearance. The anime only told the story of, about, the first eight volumes. The remaining fifteen volumes were dispatched, they did not appear. Also, in the anime they go in the exact order of the volumes until volume six, they completely skip over it and continue with the other ones until volume eight is over and save the manga with Kyo's true form for the last four episodes as a finale. They changed a few things around and added some things but volume six was practically mauled, the original story in that volume was torn. They added a ton of things that never even happened in the manga. In volume six Arisa and Saki make no appearance what-so-ever, but in the anime they do, playing a key role in helping Tohru m ake her choice to go back and save Kyo. Yuki and Shigure (especially Yuki) also become more involved than they were in the manga. TO CONCLUDE: I had some laughs at the perverted and twisted things Shigure says, drawings were somewhat average for what Funimation usually does. The dubbing was off from time-to-time. Buy it if your interested in seeing how they transferred it from manga to anime, buy it. Otherwise, DON'T! This concludes my review.
